SNL's Colin Jost and Michael Che didn't pull any punches with their criticism of Donald Trump and his response to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico during the opening of their Weekend Update segment.

JOST: Well, after President Trump was criticized for a terrible response to Hurricane Maria, this morning he finally gave the people of Puerto Rico what they needed most – a bunch of tweets straight up calling them lazy. Trump says the people of Puerto Rico “want everything to be done for them." Then he told his caddy to repair his divot and drive him to the next hole.

Hey, Trump always said he was going to get things done faster than any other president, and now I believe him, because it took George W. Bush five years to get his Katrina.

Meanwhile, rapper Pitbull has loaned out his private jet to help rescue people in Puerto Rico. Wow, if only Donald Trump knew someone with a private jet. How is the president of the United States worse at humanitarian aid than Pitbull? And you know Pitbull was doing it while also featuring on four different tracks and hosting foam parties for Bud Light.

Trump is busy doing the real work, making excuses while half explaining what an island is. Just watch.

TRUMP: This is an island, surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.

JOST: What you talking about? It's not a treacherous journey. It's Puerto Rico. Not Skull Island. Cruise ships full of retired aunts go there all the time. I think Trump is working of one of those old sailor maps with sea monsters on it.

CHE: After the Mayor of San Juan criticized the government's Puerto Rican relief efforts President Trump attacked her on twitter saying, "The Mayor of San Juan who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the democrats that you must be nasty to Trump."

Oh really Donald? You bitch. Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking? Do you want to smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving? This isn't a complicated, man, it's hurricane relief. These people need help.

You just did this for white people, twice. Do the same thing. Go, tell Melania to put on her flood heels. Get some bottled water, some food, pack up some extra Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl t-shirts, write a them a check with our money, you cheap cracker.

You know, in one month you have mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the NFL. It's like when anybody darker than your golf pants has a problem you are thinking how can I make this worse.

Trump wasn't done doing exactly that this morning. He was back on Twitter attacking his critics once again and calling the victims of the hurricane "ingrates."
